Our community needs these stories to be told

Connie does an absolutely fabulous job telling these stories. I can’t say enough how much I appreciate people like her for doing this and being genuine and passionate through her story telling. My heart feels so much pain a lot of the time and hearing these stories let’s me know how strong blood memory is.
